Proposed Model Fire and Safety Program

  • The HCS Board of Education will discuss the proposed Model Fire and Safety Program, as required by the State Department of Education and the Office of the State Fire Marshal, at the May 23rd HCS Board of Education Meeting. Residents interested in providing comments regarding the proposed Model Fire and Safety Program may sign up for public input by 12:00 p.m. on May 23rd. The proposed Model Fire and Safety Program will be voted on during the June 6th HCS Board of Education Meeting.

  • Background: Act 256 requiring each school district to create and submit a Model Fire and Safety Program was enacted in 2018 and was later codified at §59-17-160 (S.C. laws as amended).  The State Fire Marshal and the South Carolina Department of Education have developed guidelines from which our staff developed the HCS Model Fire and Safety Program. 

    Purpose: To seek approval to submit the HCS Model School Facility Fire and Safety Program Policy as required by §59-17-160 (S.C. laws as amended).
